We think there will be little trouble in having Steven Taylor sign an extended contract at Newcastle in the summer, and the only thing Steven is concentrating on is the next game.
Steven Taylor – concentrating only on next game
Stevenâ€™s always had a good attitude and he is very keen to remain a starter at the club he has supported all his life. And he’s also more than pleased that the great Kevin Keegan is back at the club, and he makes no secret of the fact that he likes playing for Kevin.
Steven Taylor told the Shields Gazette today:
“The next game is the only thing I’m looking at â€“ it’s as simple as that.â€ “I’ve got an agent now, and I’ll leave the rest to other people.â€
“There’s been enough talk all season, I’ve had my say, and now I’m just getting on with my football.â€ “I’m enjoying playing under the new manager, and I just want to play every game.”
Taylor’s start against West Ham on Saturday in Newcastle’s 2-2 draw at Upton Park was the 110th start of his Newcastle career and he has a total of 128 appearances for the club so far. Not bad for a player who only turned 22 years old in January.
It was Taylor’s 34th appearance of the season and it was the 27th time this season he has started a Premier League match.
There will be extra pressure on Steven’s place next season, as Kevin will be bringing in another top center-half, but it wouldn’t surprise us either, if Steven keeps his starting position in the team.
